FFS 4 hookers in the UBB 23. The weather probably won't co-operate, but they deserve to have a proper score put up on them.

Horwitz not fit is disappointing. This would be a perfect place for him to start and give Jack Carty a break. I would've started James Connolly, giving Jarrad a break and making Copeland captain.

Both packs heavily rotated: theirs has 10 starts between them over the first 7 rounds of the Top 14; ours has 12 over 6 rounds. Our backs have collectively more starts this season (23) than the whole UBB team (22). The four hookers thing really gives the game away though.

Are they definitely all hookers or is that just what the EPCR site calls them?
They have Finlay as a LH, Tom as a TH and Conor Mc as a 10.

EDIT: Actually, based on both EPCR and UBBs listings, there are four props and two hookers.
Explain yourself salmson, you can't just randomly accuse people of being hookers! :-)

BT Sport appear to be focusing on the Heineken Cup certainly for the group stages. No Challenge Cup pool games listed to be shown live.

I would have expected leader to come into the mix

Maynardier starts at hooker, Dufour backs him up, but numbers 20 (Lamothe, 1 start at hooker for UBB) and 23 (Pelissie - 18 UBB starts & ~50 before that for Aurillac) are also hookers. The four lads are marked as talonneurs on the UBB website, and rugby journo Paul Eddison is having a go on Twitter too.

J'accuse, UBB! J'accuse!

I withdraw my defamatory allegation of defamatory allegation (without prejudice or admission of liability).
I thought you meant the replacement props were all hookers, but it's much worse than that!
I assume UBB just didn't get the memo about the move to unlimited squads. Surely they have lads in their espoirs that they could have included who would do a much better job on the wing than their fifth choice hooker.

We will win. in all likelyhood, to be careful.
Main question is : Why Griffin instead of Leader?
And more crucial : Sale going full-strenght in Perpignan, will they rotate a bit next week to prepare their domestic league?

Sale don't have a league game until November 17 (the not-Anglo-Welsh Cup kicks off straight after Europe) so they may be fully loaded against us.

In fairness to Bourdeaux we went over to Newcastle with Heff at 20 and nobody at all at 23 a few years back, I know that was due to severe injuries; but should we give them the benefit of the doubt or is that too kind. There are some of their big names in the squad.
